When hearing a pleural rub in child's r lung, what co occurring symptoms determine child should go to doc on wkend? [5yo trach, baseline: clear ls]

Fever, cough, pain: In a child who has a tracheostomy, hearing pleural rubs on the right would be particularly concerning as this is the most common place to get a pneumonia in such individuals.

If there is wheezing from the lungs, can a doctor hear it with a stethoscope regardless if you are exhaling from your nose or your mouth?

If there is wheezing from the lungs, can a doctor hear it with a stethoscope regardless if you are exhaling from your nose or your mouth?

Yes: Yes, because the narrowing of the airway occurs in an area lower than both the mouth or the nose. It is right where the lungs are, and that is where the doctor would put the stethoscope to hear it. ...Read more

Consider CBT: A course of cognitive-behavioral therapy focused on restructuring your thinking about your overall health -- even if it turns out that there's something minor with the heart. If your exercise tolerance is reasonably normal and you passed the basic heart tests, your heart's okay. Consider also a lifestyle change -- hitting the gym hard, making friends with athletes -- could cure you. ...Read more

My friends uncle had throat cancer (tumor) spread to lungs and blood according to doctors and say survival is impossible, what options does he have?

My friends uncle had throat cancer  (tumor) spread to lungs and blood according to doctors and say survival is impossible, what options does he have?

End of Life: Cancer that has spread to multiple organs with distant metastasis is regrettably, an extremely poor prognosis. The best option is to ask your doctor to enlist the services of hospice. The inter disciplinary team will not only attend to his physical needs for comfort through a doctor and nurse, but also address his nutrition and spiritual needs as well. My prayers are with you for peace. ...Read more

My dad says he has a tumor in his chest but he's scared to go to the doctor.What harm can it do to him?

My dad says he has a tumor in his chest but he's scared to go to the doctor.What harm can it do to him?

Must be evaluated: The word tumor just means a lump of cells that isn't supposed to be there. It can be small, benign (not cancerous, so doesn't spread to other places), in an unimportant place, and slow-growing, which is not a big deal. It can be big, cancerous, growing into vital organs, and rapidly increasing, which can kill the person quickly. Of course, it can also be anywhere in between those extremes. ...Read more

More often than not though, listening to your heart is just part of a thorough physical exam. ...Read more
